Primary tabs


The tutorial will cover the main aspects of the Vivado HLS optimizations, and the OmpSs@FPGA approach. There will be a number of lab sessions based on HLS Xilinx samples for coding and optimization:
       Matrix multiplication
       RGB – YUV filter
       Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT)

The tutorial will cover the main aspects of the Vivado HLS optimizations, and the OmpSs@FPGA approach. 

Requirements and other informations:

 A USB Hard disk will be used with all the toolchain needed to perform the  hands on. Please, test that your computer will be able to boot from a bootable
 Hard Disk. 

 Zedboards will be used in the tutorial because of two reasons:

1) we can  provide up to 15 zedboards for the course and

2) it is much easier and faster to compile to them than for a bigger system like a Zynq Ultrascale+. If you  can bring your own Zedboard, it would be great.

 We will also provide you with a 4-GB. SD card to boot (Linux) the Zedboard with all the necessary to make the hands-on.

 Further documentation will be provided before the hands-on. The registration has closed now.
